A race that will take you to the top of the most famous peak on Lake Ceresio.

A historic race, forgotten for years and now coming back to life for you. The departure from the beautiful town of Paradiso, kissed by the waters of Lake Ceresio and a very intense route that will take you to the summit of San Salvatore from which the view of the Gulf of Lugano, the Alps and the Po Valley will be incredible. Descent to the valley with the magnificent funicular.


Exploring paths far and wide and equipped with much experience in organizing mountain competitions, we let ourselves be fascinated by the possibility of offering something new by reliving a historical race. After a departure through the streets of the town of Paradiso, the route follows a very beautiful panoramic path that leads directly to the summit at 913 meters above sea level. The panoramic terraces, the warm spring sun, and the festive atmosphere will complete a wonderful day of sport, friendship, and joy. The excellent welcome of the San Salvatore Team is particularly suitable for families with children who want to participate in the popular walk.


The departure from Paradiso allows everyone to easily reach this unique location by public transport or private vehicles; for those staying in the area for longer, there are ample options for hotels and accommodation facilities. The race ends on top of the mountain, a renowned panoramic resort that also offers many alternative activities, where you can eat and attend the award ceremony before returning to the valley by funicular (or by foot) quickly and safely. The finish area is also easily accessible to non-runners who would like to go up to assist their loved ones or watch the arrivals and cheer on the runners.
